Ok - I read some of your comments on other threads and you seem like a reasonably smart person so I have a question/comment or two.
W has an MBA from Harvard - how can you be dumb as a box of rocks and still get that? He also is/was a jet pilot - you can’t be stupid and do that.
I’m not saying he hasn’t made huge mistakes - he seems to have become very passive and certainly hasn’t displayed a conservative soul. His drove me nuts on amnesty, not to mention a few other things, but not Katrina.
So is W’s brain really Dick Cheney? Is that why W didn’t choose an electable successor to be his VP during the second term?
Here is what gets me about the Bush is dumb BS argument...Is GWs father dumb? is his mother dumb ? are all his brothers dumb? Is his wife dumb? no
It is absolutely absurd to think he comes from that group of people and is dumb .....I do think he hides behind a good old boy mask....but coming from Texas I can see where it comes in handy. In purely political terms Bush won more battles than he lost so I doubt his opponents really think he is dumb
